Army Navy Game: College Football Odds Favor Navy, But Not Overwhelmingly

In the past, the Army-Navy Game has usually been very lopsided in favor of the Midshipmen. However, Army has improved tremendously this year, making this a game between two bowl teams for the first time in a while. 

The early line reflects that. While Navy has outscored Army by an 89-6 margin in the last three games of the series, they aren't favored by an overwhelming amount. According to the latest odds on SBNation.com, the Midshipmen are favored by seven points. Here's how they break down:

 

  • Opening: Navy by 7.5
  • 5Dimes.com: Navy by 7.5
  • Bodog: Navy by eight
The fact that the game is being played in Philadelphia surely has something to do with the lines. Surely, the Midshipmen have been favored by much more in previous contests.

Here are the over/under lines:

  • Opening: 56.5-110
  • 5Dimes.com: 52.5-105
  • Bodog: 54-115
